I had a meeting today with a couple of peers who work on other projects. We discussed API’s as a possible solution for extracting data from websites. While doing some research, I began to think about ElectroNeek and how there are certain aspects that we have to capture or manage manually–things like retrieving the CSS Selectors or XPaths of elements, for example. It would be extremely beneficial on all of us if ElectroNeek was able to capture these aspects of web elements automatically. Additionally, the ElectroNeek IDE and Bot Runner should utilize these aspects when trying to identify elements–if the chosen attributes do not find the element, then the bot will use the CSS Selector and XPath to find it. Small things like this can really mean a lot, especially for small businesses like the one I work for where I am the only RPA/OCR developer responsible for building and managing hundreds-to-thousands of processes while documenting every step.
Thank you for your time and consideration regarding this issue! Have an amazing day!
